Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Lens Opening
Because the thin plastic is likely to stretch after a while, I added a drawstring that goes around the end of the lens/hood. Whether you add it or not, you'll need to cut out an opening. Then reenforce the edges with some duct tape and hole punch every 1/2 inch or so. After that, thread the string through.
Step 2: Viewfinder and Screen
If the rubber thing on you viewfinder comes off, you can cut a small hole and reattatch it over the bag. It will take a little adjusting, just don't make the hole too big. If it doesn't come off (or you don't have one) then I would just skip it and make the see-through screen really big.
Now for the screen. I cut out a large piece of the (non-branded) side of the Ziploc and used a little duct tape to secure it. That's it.
Step 3: String Around Body
This is optional, but it helps keep the whole thing in place. Just take a thing of string and wrap it around the base of the camera, poking holes in the plastic. After that, you're done. Happy picture taking.
